2+2=4 is a good place to start in the understanding of knowledge. The Bible tells us that there is no wisdom without God. The Bible tells us that even the Bible cannot be understood without submission to God. Good, pure, and true knowledge is not possible without God. If you think you have knowledge without God, what you really have is only knowledge of the elements of what is good, pure, and true, but not the understanding. The understanding of knowledge is wisdom, and wisdom is only of God. Prov2.6 For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding…
This simple mathematical formula is of God and can only be understood by having knowledge of the God of the Bible, the creator of the universe. So how can the unbelievers also know that 2+2=4? This formula like most mathematical equations does not have an ethical element and therefore can be calculated by the unbeliever, but not understood.
How is this any different than the believer? The believer knows that 2+2=4 is true because God is true. The believer understands that man did not create the fact that 2+2=4…this formula like all mathematical formulas was a creation of God. This knowledge was in the mind of God before the universe was created. In fact had it not been and made a part of the very fiber of the universe, the universe could not function.
Man like math was in the mind of God from the beginning, and man like math is part of the purpose of God. Math is good, pure, and true, and the beauty of function throughout nature is a picture of God and how wonderful math was and is in the mind of God. Man was just as good, pure, and true until sin entered the world.
Man would not exist if math was not preexistent in the mind of God, for without math the universe would not exist. The truth and purity of math is a requirement for man’s existence. But this is what man does; he takes the good, the pure, and the truth of God and corrupts it. Then man takes the math of God, those same good, pure, and true qualities of God’s purpose to declare that there is no God…using the math of God. The evolutionist loves math, but not the God of math.
Knowledge is not possible without submission to God and the understanding of the good, pure, and true of 2+2=4 is not possible without God.
2+2=4 was created by God for His purpose and judgment is by God for His purpose. The language of math is the very language of judgment both for the believer and unbeliever…we all must give an account of our life to God…the God of math.
Heb4.12 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13 And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account.
